Have someone help you do the following. Turn on the vehicle,before it dies,quickly tap the idle air control valve with a wrench or anything you have. If the engine does not die after you tap the IAC,this means that the IAC is faulty. The IAC is under the plastic plate that is behind the throttle body.

2003 sport trac turned over started...died will not restart.


Could be bad altenator, voltage regulator, or battery. If the check engine light is on, it is most likely a bad sensor. The car will have to be put on scanner to find out exact reason light is on.
